This work details an investigation into the production of porous shape memory alloys (smas) via hot isostatic press ing the run which allows for the production of samples with varying porosity as well as for fine-tuning of the processing techniques will be presented as well as a detailed investigation of the thermal and. Shape memory is a property of select materials that have the ability to remember the shape given during original thermo-mechanical processing allowing the material to revert to that original shape when subjected to heat.
A scaled-down model of smart aileron was constructed based on niti sma plate and aluminium plate prior to the manufacturing process, niti sma plates had to be trained to suit our application the leading edge was constructed using trained niti sma plates, whereas the trailing edge was constructed using aluminium. 2, 2016 153 influence of cu addition to improve shape memory properties in niti alloys developed by laser rapid manufacturing s shiva1, i a palani12 , s k mishra3, c p paul3 and l m kukreja3 1 laser mechatronics and instrumentation laboratory, indian institute of technology, indore 453441, india.
Niti and other shape memory alloys respond to variation in applied stress and temperature by significantly changing their mechanical behavior due to their unique mechanical properties, traditional machining processes are extremely difficult and, in some cases, impossible additive manufacturing (am also known as 3d. The machining characteristics and surface integrity of ni-rich niti shape memory alloy using wire electric discharge machining the aim of this experimental investigation is to explore the influence of wire electric discharge machining process parameters such as spark gap voltage, wire tension, spark off.
